NIKE PACK WEEK

With Nike’s Retro Basketball line being such a major topic this year, it’s time we focus on one of the most concentrated Nike Basketball releases ever – the Nike ‘Hoop’ Pack of late 2005. Some may have overlooked these classics primarily because these were released exclusively overseas, so if you needed a reminder, there’s no better time than now. The Nike ‘Hoop’ Pack features a number of Nike Basketball models new and old ranging from the earliest Nike Blazer, to the new models like the Air Force Operate and Shox MTX. Sprinkled in between are other Classic models like the Air Force 180, Air Max Penny, and Air More Uptempo, but let’s break down this Pack even further.

The Nike ‘Hoop’ Pack was developed with a select group of NBA players in mind, with their teams acting as the maestros of each symphonic piece. The Air More Uptempo, which we attribute to Scottie Pippen, featured a re-mixed Chicago Bulls colorway with a daring Red upper and black patent leather on the big ‘AIR’. Penny Hardaway’s Air Max Penny threw in a contrasting University Blue in the classic Orlando, while four models featured the blazing Phoenix Suns colorway as the centerpiece. Being overseas exclusives (some released in Canada), the Hoop Pack was a tough find – particularly the lesser-known models like Tony Parker’s Air Double Figure (the Zoom Huarache 2k5 takedown model) and the aforementioned Shox MTX (Matrix, for Shawn Marion). Check out the entire Nike Hoop Pack of late 2005 below and stay tuned for more Pack goodness tomorrow in Classics Revisited!

That colorway of the Air More Uptempo is honestly on of my Nike Basketball grails! Can never go wrong with the Bred cw! Those Air Force 180's are dope as well. The Shox MTX are kinda cool, never seen those before.
